Walter L. Main's Great Show has come and
has gone. It was a great show. Nothing but
high class artists were employed. The terrific
cycle whirl alone was worth the price of admis
sion. The main show itself was a credit to any
man. Those who missed the show, missed
something worth swing.
If the tux payers of Snyber (bounty are to help i
to pay f r a bribge, the bridge t-hould be erected
where it will be most convenieut to the greatest

or the contraction of a new bridge, involves.
such a large expenditure of money that the sub
ject should be Ireely discussed. . The P)kT offers
its columns for the discussion of this subject.

Free Undue (Question.
Application will be made at Court next week
for the appointment of viewers to free the West
liranch Bridge at Northumberland. There is
great need of a free bridge across the Susque
hanna to promote the commercial relations of
both tides of the river. The chief commercial
relations of Snyder county people are with Sun
bury anil not with Nortluunlicrland. The free
ing of the West Branch Bridge would do very
little good to our people as there are still tolls on
the North Branch Bridges, which woi-ld have to
be paid before getting into Sunbury.
There, are two miles of very dangerous road
with the river on one side and the Heading Kail
road on the other from Clement Station to the
East End of the West Branch bridge, beside the
bridge ii old and would soon have to be rebuilt.
